PROMOTER Eddie Hearn has joked he cannot wait until someone “chins” Jake Paul with the YouTuber-turned-boxer yet to taste defeat inside the squared circle.

The 25-year-old has won all five of his outings since turning professional in January 2020 where he knocked out fellow content creator AnEsonGib.

He then stopped former NBA star Nate Robinson later that year, before brutally blasting out former MMA ace Ben Askren in April 2021.

Paul then outpointed UFC icon Tyron Woodley just a few months later, with the Problem Child then knocking him out in their rematch in December.

The ex-Disney actor was originally scheduled to pit his wits against Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy before Christmas, but the fight fell through after the Brit suffered a broken rib.

A rearranged bout has been rumoured to take place in August with both men vowing the dust-up won’t go the distance.

Commenting on the potential encounter, Hearn, who told Paul he is “average” to his face, has claimed he is looking forward to the day the American suffers his first defeat.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “I don’t represent them, but I hear that fight [Paul vs Fury] is happening August 13, so you might see it.

“Both are very limited, but as long as it’s a competitive fight, it doesn’t really matter.

“Jake Paul is a strange one, but I like what he’s doing for boxing.

“I did Amanda Serrano vs Katie Taylor with him and it was great fun, it was a big success.

“He’s putting the work in and he’s not terrible.

“But it’ll be a pleasant day when someone chins him.”

Hearn also told Paul he will never win a world title in April after insisting he is yet to challenge himself against a boxer.
